Country singer-songwriter, Brett Young returned to his alma mater, Ole Miss, to shoot the music video for his next radio single, “Catch” off his newest record Ticket to L.A. Watch the video below!
The song, which was co-written by Ashley Gorley and Ross Copperman, takes place at a bar. Young sings about how he just wants to go out with the boys and take in a game but then sees a girl who steals all his attention. The visual, however, takes place on the baseball field. Young is the star pitcher of the Ole Miss Baseball team. While on the mound, he catches a glimpse of the young, attractive girl in the front row who returns the same look. They meet up after the game to get milkshakes and just like that they’re campus’ cutest couple. He waits for her to get out of class and greets her with lunch and she’s at every game, cheering on her new boyfriend as he strikes out a bevy of opposing hitters.
This feel-good story suddenly takes a turn for the worst. After Young throws his next pitch, he immediately clutches his right arm in pain as the ball sails over the fence. He heads to the training room to be treated; his girlfriend following to comfort him in his time of need. His bullpen session the next day does not go well as the coaches agree to shut him down for what would end up becoming forever.
This video is based on Young’s true life. Young, slated for a career in professional baseball, suffered a serious elbow injury that would halt his ability to pitch for good. Luckily for Young, he was blessed with two outstanding gifts growing up; his pitching arm and his voice. Young began singing in high school as a worship leader and became inspired by country music through Gavin DeGraw records. “Chapters”, another track off the new album features DeGraw and is all about Young’s life in baseball.
The story does a complete 360 as Young catches a young boy’s pitch on the same baseball field Young used to pitch in. He then grabs the boy’s hand and walks off the field.
“Catch” was a Most Added song at country radio this week, debuting on the chart at number 48. The music video was directed by Seth Kupersmith, who also directed the video for Young’s “Mercy”.
